Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nationalreview.com: “Biden Claims the Media Inflated AOC’s Role as Party Leader: ‘You Guys Got it All Wrong’ | National Review”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is accusing the media of “bad judgment” in their coverage of progressive Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying reporters and commentators have exaggerated her political rise as indicative of the direction of the overall party.

“I do,” Biden responded. “It’s not fake. It’s just bad judgment.”

“You all thought that what happened was the party moved extremely to the left after Hillary. AOC was the new party,” Biden continued. “She’s a bright, wonderful person. But where’s the party? Come on, man.”

That comment came amid a discussion on healthcare in which Biden agreed that while some of 2020 presidential opponents are all in on Medicare for All, “the party is not there at all.”

Ocasio-Cortez burst upon the political scene last year when she snagged her Bronx and Queens congressional seat in an upset election against 10-term incumbent and Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley. Since then, she has pushed a progressive agenda similar to that of Biden’s 2020 opponent, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, including Medicare for All and the Green New Deal.
